Student Reviews

outstanding department and university atmosphere
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

in my opinion the criminology department was outstanding with great people. i have enjoyed the classes and was very interested in what was learned. what unfortunately did not work for me was the heavy religious aspect that was in the university. i did know before enrolling and i have preformed according but that was a down point for me.
